The self described “psych-blues” band Dragondeer is quickly becoming a staple in Denver’s music scene, resonating with fans of bluegrass, folk-americana, and rock ‘n’ roll alike. When I first heard Dragondeer at Park House off Colfax I was immediately drawn into their sound and stage presence, they had a sound that takes bands years to achieve. Suffice it to say I was surprised when I learned that they were basically brand new, formed in 2013. Despite the fact that they’re new to the scene Dragondeer has already received critical acclaim and graced the stage with acts like Shakey Graves, Pimps of Joytime, Slightly Stoopid, and folk legend Linda Perhacs. This is a band you need to check out, and to really experience the glory that is Dragondeer you need to see the band live. Luckily for you they’ll be opening for The Heavy Pets this Saturday at Cervantes’ Other Side, so come out early for a slice of what’s really good in Denver.
